Grade: Gentle

Riding into Switzerland we climb gently through Chiasso and Mendrisio, then down behind Capolago to Riva San Vitale. Around the curving shore of beautiful Lake Lugano we re-enter Italy, ride through Porto Ceresio and on to Ponte Tresa - a pretty spot for a coffee. We continue around the edge of the lake, crossing back into Switzerland. For a short time we then leave the lake and cut across Caslano and ride past the end of Lugano Airport’s runway. A right turn shortly after brings us back to the shoreline, and we ride a beautiful flat road on the edge of a peninsula into the lake, through Morcote to arrive at Melide. We then cross the causeway over the lake to Bissone, and return along the lake’s eastern edge back to Chiasso and on to our starting point on Lake Como.

Pietro - Laya and I just wanted to send you a quick email letting you know we had such an amazing time riding with you last week in Lake Como. It was truly one of the big highlights of our entire honeymoon!

Pietro, I wanted to let you know that I had a fantastic ride! I tried to follow “The Border Run” route you describe on your website as best I could and it was tough and awesome. The bike was perfect, the weather was perfect, the place was perfect!


Pietro, you put on an outstanding ride for our little group. The ability to join three guys that will never meet otherwise, putting us together for the ride was very cool. Being my first time to the area I was nervous. You put me at ease and we just rode. It was perfect.


I am still speechless! That was one of the most amazing days - we both had such a fantastic time. We loved the very different views and conditions on the west vs east side of the lake. We also enjoyed the many stops for coffee, lunch and walks amongst the shops. I loved it so much I was ready to do another loop!
